Meintjes, who finished 31st overall in the inaugural edition of the UAE Tour, will line up alongside Dimension Data teammates Mark Cavendish, Edvald Boasson Hagen, Bernhard Eisel, Lars Bak, Julien Vermote and Scott Davies.
Boasson Hagen, who was affected by illness in the Volta ao Algarve last month, said he was looking forward to Paris-Nice.
“It’s a long time since I’ve been at the race and it’s going to be interesting to see what it’s like. I hope I perform better now than I did on the opening weekend.
“I’ve been struggling a bit since I was sick in the Algarve but I’ve been resting this week so hopefully I’ll be in better shape and get something out of the race.”
The team will be in the hunt for a good overall position as well as stage wins in the eight-stage race that starts in Saint-Germain-en-Laye tomorrow.
